Ukrainian Refugee Coordinator Says She Was Abducted, Threatened


Haide Rizayeva, a Maidan activist and coordinator for people displaced from Ukraine's troubled regions, told journalists in Kyiv she was briefly abducted and threatened. Rizayeva said the abductors, one of whom spoke with a "strong Russian accent," offered her money if she agreed to remove a tent now housing families from Crimea on Kyiv's Independence Square.
